Camp applications are now available on the diocesan website (Click here for applications, a camp brochure and other forms). Summer Camp is June 14-20 and this year, Camp Nazareth is adding a high and low ropes course. The Diocese is partnering with them in this project by financing the low ropes course. Please join us at 7:00 PM on Sunday, June 14 (prior to registration), for a brief liturgy to bless the ropes course.
Every summer for over thirty years, young people in grades 2-12 gather at Camp Nazareth, an Orthodox camp, near Mercer, PA, for a week of summer camp. The camp is staffed each year by a group of approximately 25 adults from around the diocese who are committed to providing the best camp experience possible. An average of 130 young people participate in activities that include worship, small group discussions, team building, swimming, softball, and a wide variety of other activities. This summer camp program is one of the most positive experiences offered in our diocese. It is its own tradition here and has impacted the lives of many of our young people over the years. More and more we see those who were once campers returning to be counselors. Diocesan Summer Camp truly encompasses the best of who we are as a diocese: a community knit together by our faith and our shared experience that is Northwestern Pennsylvania.
